Lolita Meet for Lolita Memoires Volume 2 Release

Last August 19 2017, The Philippine Gothic and Lolita Community gathered again for the release of our self-published lolita fashion photomag, Lolita Memoires. We are already on our volume two with a bigger number of pledges this time.

This year, we agreed to hold the meet-up at Le Petit Souffle at SM Megamall. It's my first time at the establishment and I got to try their matcha latte with ice cream. I didn't eat though for I was saving space for Hot Star chicken later that day hahaha! Sorry not sorry.

I sported a quick up-do hairstyle that day for I planned to just commute to the venue. Uber was under suspension that time and even getting a Grabcar was a bloodbath. Will definitely do it again in the future it was so free-ing!

The girls shared afternoon tea. I never really liked tea no matter how much I try. It's just not my cup of tea. Pun intended. lol

With citrus girl, Mayi.

I've been seeing this place a lot at Tricia's blog. This place is indeed charming.

As usual, we spent the afternoon signing each other's copies along with fun chit-chats and singing Despacito. hahaha

A collective of lolitas is always an eye-candy.

Our new friend, Val from Canada. She chanced upon us at our shoot in BGC two weeks before the meet and was kind enough to approach us and introduce herself. It was amazing it felt like we were in an elite global society and you'd know a sister is sister with just secret codes and stuff. When she said, "I love your coordinates!" COORDINATES! Only a seasoned lolita will use this term. It's indeed a magic word. So happy she was able to join us in this meet despite being in the country for work.

Coordinate rundown: 
JSK - Leur Getter | Boots - Bodyline | Everything else - offbrand

Of course, a PGLC meet is never complete without our sentai formation photo.
